No, I’m not blogging about The Clash. I’m posting about what’s drawn some of your favorite American genealogy bloggers across the Atlantic this week: the Who Do You Think You Are? Live! genealogy show Feb 22-24 in London.
That’s “Who Do You Think You Are?” as in the BBC television program that inspired the American version, which NBC cancelled after last season (boo!).
Who Do You Think You Are? Live! is known for its high attendance (about 13,000 last year) and large, vibrant exhibit hall. The 2013 show has more than 160 exhibitors and sections for:
- National Archives Theater with workshops on using British national archives resources
- Celebrity Theater with guests from the “Who Do You Think You Are?”
- Photography Gallery focusing on old family photos (and featuring our own Photo Detective and Family Photo Detective book author Maureen A. Taylor)
- Military Pavilion where experts from museums display artifacts and answer military research questions
- Ask the Experts area for 20-minute consultations with genealogy pros
- DNA workshop area
The British Society of Genealogists also is offering family history workshops.
We’ll bring you conference-related news announcements, as well as Maureen’s reports on the Photography Gallery.
Feeling left out? Don’t: There’s no need to spring for an airline ticket, book a hotel or wear holes in your walking shoes to attend our Winter 2013 Virtual Genealogy Conference—it also takes place this weekend, but at a computer near you. You can view 15 video classes, interact with instructors and your fellow exhibitors, and open up a swag bags of genealogy goodies, all while sporting your bunny slippers.
